      Pros

      . Terrific people - brilliant people who are willing to share their expertise . The company is focused in AI/ML which is a rapidly growing area . Lots of challenging AI/ML projects . Great place to grow and develop skills which will be useful across the industry . Lack of rigid hierarchy

      Cons

      Being part of a global community is extremely rewarding, but means some out of hours calls and communication.

      Pros

      Competitive pay, good culture within the Montreal office, smart folks working in marketing who have generated a lot of positive news and analyst coverage despite being resource constrained. Wonderful sales colleagues.

      Cons

      IMO, products have gaps between what exists and what is marketed. Implementation issues complicate the sales cycle

      Pros

      Teams support each other to make sure the customer is happy. Sales works hard to find new opportunities. SVP has clear vision for company.

      Cons

      Customer Success rewards those individuals working on governance, reports, websites or asking what are you working on?

      Pros

      A lot of good, smart, experienced in the industry and hard-working people in this company. CEO is open, transparent and making positive changes in the organization. Most importantly has a vision for the company's growth. If you have idea's this company will listen, if you want opportunities there is a lot here and you will be able to create your own. A good organization to drive your career.

      Cons

      A company needs 3 things to succeed. People, Process and Product and this company lacking the 3rd (Product).

      Great place to grow and learn, but be ready to go beyond your comfort zone

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Guavus operates like a startup with high transparency, low bureaucracy, and fast decision making. It is also part of a much larger parent company and enjoys the stability and benefits that this brings. High performers are rewarded with promotion opportunities and asked what they'd like to do next to grow their career.

      Cons

      Guavus is a very fast paced business, if you prefer a medium or slower pace, this may not be the best place for you. Since Guavus is startup-like, there is little overlap between roles, so you're likely to grow your skills and knowledge quickly. This hyper growth is sometimes uncomfortable and dizzying, but can also be very rewarding.

      Growth Opportunities

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Generally stabilizing as part of Thales; much opportunity for (personal/career) growth (on analytics team in CA at least?); great teams and friendly people (although still quite siloed per function and location); access to interesting projects and interesting data and interesting brains and interesting tools/resources; generally good compromise of freedom vs. oversight.

      Cons

      Lots of changes and movement, and a general lack of strong organizational consistency for years, at least until end 2018: from team structure, to (CA) office location, to acquisitions, to utilization of varied internal office software/platforms/tech, to active clients (beyond the top 5) + general sales plan, to product/project management style, to HR proactivity and knowledgeability, to reporting and review requirements, to etc. etc.

      Bullying and Scandals

      Pros

      They aren't nice on the outside but it's all fake.

      Cons

      This company cannot be trusted. They bullied me and framed me until I was let go. Unfortunately it was not just me but I can say at least more than several other ex employees to. One employee charged up the company credit card and the company knowingly wrote it off. That employees still works there and is one of the bullies. There was even a case where employees blackmailed the upper management to get what they want . The scary thing was there was something for them to blackmail. I was treated so bad and then ended up being set up. The whole company from top to bottom will throw you under the bus for their gain. This company does not play by the rules but there is just nothing you can do about it.
